our blog gets recruiters thinking

We love awards events (attending and potentially winning!) and want recruitment leaders to get real value from them - so we're running a 3 part series on our blog!

We want to demonstrate the potential ROI of these events and how to achieve it.

As part of my Recruitment Leaders podcast series on SoundCloud I spoke with Teri Etherington, UK Country Manager for Recruitment International.

Teri has over 14 years experience in and around the recruitment industry, working with well established and start-up recruiters and suppliers to provide valuable insight into the world of UK recruitment.

We had a great session around awards events - why you should enter, how you should enter, how to lose, and of course the ROI.

We talked about: 

  • What is the key to winning an award?
  • Which awards should you enter?
  • What are the key, stupid mistakes that many recruitment teams make when they enter awards?
  • Why is it that so many “go getter” recruitment leaders fail to win awards? What an irony!
  • How to plan for an award entry – and ultimately win.

This is a great listen for recruitment leaders and marketers who are keen to grow their businesses and understand how important awards are in their strategy. Nominations for the Recruitment International Awards opens 1 August.

The awards are held in London on Thursday 20 October - don't miss them!

And if you want advice on the how, why and ROI of entering awards, check out Recruitment International's event in July (you may see a familiar face): Start Seeing ROI from Awards Events
